Well, I like both so it depends of my mood or what is the best for the drawing. I must admit that cell shading is easier (just layers on layers, unsubtle...) but I have a lot of fun to mix colours and make textures with my brush in a digital painting. Even if I like smoothed surfaces I actually prefer when it's textured, with interesting colours... a little crazy. I must work on that style myself, I am to shy with my brushes. Also in a digital painting I don't need to do a lineart and I use fewer layers, but the time I gain not doing it I waist it in the complexity of the digital painting. So.. It is just a choice to make .
Well It is almost finished but since all this time I play StarFox Adventures on emulator (when I can) to see the Krazoa palace's floor in "HD". Because with the quality of the videos I don't understand the pattern of this floor. Then I saw the ~GreyfirefoxRenders 's render and I thought nobody will be interested by my pic anymore.
